Woodborough Hall Wedding Photography
The day started for me, capturing the guest arrivals in the main bar. Plenty of people had travelled long distances to be at the wedding of Michelle and Tony, and many were gasping for a good drink!
There were plenty of family reunions and friends who hadn’t seen each other for a while; capturing these moments help to tell the story of the people at the wedding.
THE WEDDING CEREMONY ROOM
The wedding ceremony room at Woodborough hall is beautiful, with big windows down the side of the main hall, and with the light cascading down from the big ceiling windows it made for a lovely environment to get married.
THE NERVOUS GROOM
As is the tradition, the bride was slightly late, which made Tony more nervous. Tony’s brother loved the fact that Michelle was somewhat late and kept popping up to where Tony was stood to have a few little digs – it was quite funny watching Tony’s reaction.
THE FLOWER GIRL
One of my favourite images from the ceremony is the girls coming down the aisle before Michelle and her dad. I love the look on Michelle and Tony’s daughter’s face as she is the centre of attention, and with Tony kneeling to catch her eye – and the low-down nature of the photo it makes quite a dynamic picture.
THE WEDDING CEREMONY
The wedding ceremony was a lovely one, with all the right legal bits done in all the right places!
THE HUGS (MY FAVOURITE BIT)
Once the ceremony was done, it was off back into the bar, where I worked the room capturing some of my favourite “hug” pictures – and it wasn’t long before we were at the wedding breakfast and then into the speeches.
THE WEDDING SPEECHES
Michelle’s Dad enlisted the help of all the kids at the wedding to help him deliver the Father of the Bride speech – something I hadn’t seen before and was very special.
During Tony’s speech, there was one section that I still remember now and will remember for a long time. Tony talked about his proudest moments – he said his second proudest moment was holding both his daughters in his arms, and that his proudest moment is while holding his daughters in his arms they hold and hug him back.
After the speeches, people drifted away to play games, or outside to enjoy the gardens – and, drifting into the bar.
THE CAKE CUT
The evening kicked off with the cake-cut and the first time that I have photographed a wedding cake being cut with a MASSIVE sword! Now, this picture is an interesting one, there are many angles that you can take a ‘wedding cake being cut’ picture, you can go low, go high, show the guests in the background; but I had clocked the big mirror and thought I could use that to my advantage and make a sometimes boring picture a more interesting one.
THE FIRST DANCE
The first dance; or the first shuffle as I call it as most of the time the happy couple awkwardly shuffle around each other… but for this first dance Michelle and Tony had learned a nice slow dance especially for their wedding day – lovely stuff!
It was my first time photographing at Woodborough Hall, and it is a beautiful setting for a wedding – especially as you get exclusive-use, so no randoms walking around; I’d certainly add it to your shortlist if you are looking for wedding venues in Nottingham.
Below are a few pictures from the day – all the images were captured using 2x Sony Alpha A9s, Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA, Sony FE 85mm F1.8, Sony Planar T* FE 50mm F1.4 ZA, and the FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM.

“Andy is a fantastic photographer and a lovely guy! From the first time we spoke on the phone, I knew he would capture our day perfectly! He understood what I wanted more than I did and nothing was too much for him. My favourite photos of the day are ones I didn’t know were being taken! A number of our guests have since commented about how discreet he was, they had no idea he took as many photos of them as he did. I would highly recommend Andy to anyone looking for a photographer! I’m already trying to plan another event just to ask Andy to take more photos. (Thank you Andy for capturing the day and giving us beautiful photos to look back on!)” – Michelle
